When you have beams with 135 deg closed ties you are required by the ACI code to have one rebar on each corner of the tie. If you have 2 no.8 at bottom and 2 no.8 bars at top how would you keep the 4 bars on the corners just after a splice? With an offset lap splice? Additional rebar? I have usually seen straight lap splices and wonder if this is acceptable for this condition?
